My God is able, yes! He is able to carry me through. Jesus is able, yes! He is able, yes! He is able to carry me through.// What a Mighty God we serve! 2x Heaven and earth adore Thee, angels bow before Him what a Might God we serve.
Our Father we thank You for everything You have done for us. We are grateful for the gift of life and health You granted unto us, glory be to Your Name alone. Thank You for You are great and You do great things for us.
You are Mighty, Lord. You parted the Red sea for Your children to cross over. A mighty ocean became as a solid ground for Your children to pass through but for Your enemies, You drown, O! God, You are great.
When the walls of Jericho became a hindrance to Your children from inheriting their promised land, You shattered it with a sound of shout from the chosen. You are indeed Mighty to save. I also know that You are able to make whole. Glory be to You alone in Jesus Name.
Beloved, what are your concerns in this year of Greater Glory? Another opportunity is knocking again today at your door, do not waste it. Engage maximally and benefit fully from what the Holy Spirit is bring our way today.
The God we serve answers pray; He is also Mighty to save. The devil mighty want to question you about certain decisions you made concerning your faith, career, business and ministry base on the Word of God as he questioned Eve in the garden.
Your knowledge of what the Word of God says is very important else you will be short-changing yourself as Eve did and that resulted in their exit from the garden of Eden. Beloved, same is still happening in our time because we refuse to take out time to study the Word we exit base on what we received from a third party and when we are highly challenged, we get stuck. And that is a big issue.
Eph 6:10 told us to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Isaiah 9:6 have this to say For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God,… Are you in doubt whether God is able to save?
Come along with me to see what the message of today have to say to us:
“Mighty to save.” Isaiah 63:1
By the words “to save” we understand the whole of the great work of salvation, from the first holy desire onward to complete sanctification. The words are multum in parro: indeed, here is all mercy in one word. Christ is not only “mighty to save” those who repent, but He is able to make men repent.
He will carry those to heaven who believe; but He is, moreover, mighty to give men new hearts and to work faith in them. He is mighty to make the man who hates holiness love it, and to constrain the despiser of His name to bend the knee before Him.
Nay, this is not all the meaning, for the divine power is equally seen in the after-work. The life of a believer is a series of miracles wrought by “the Mighty God.” The bush burns, but is not consumed. He is mighty to keep His people holy after He has made them so, and to preserve them in his fear and love until he consummates their spiritual existence in heaven.
Christ’s might doth not lie in making a believer and then leaving him to shift for himself; but He who begins the good work carries it on; He who imparts the first germ of life in the dead soul, prolongs the divine existence, and strengthens it until it bursts asunder every bond of sin, and the soul leaps from earth, perfected in glory.
Believer, here is encouragement. Art thou praying for some beloved one? Oh, give not up thy prayers, for Christ is “mighty to save.” You are powerless to reclaim the rebel, but your Lord is Almighty. Lay hold on that mighty arm, and rouse it to put forth its strength.
Does your own case trouble you? Fear not, for His strength is sufficient for you. Whether to begin with others, or to carry on the work in you, Jesus is “mighty to save;” the best proof of which lies in the fact that He has saved you. What a thousand mercies that you have not found Him mighty to destroy!
Yes! God is able to save you from all your distractors and make them carrier of goodnews like He did Paul. All you need do is to pray and trust God that He knows what He is doing else we fall into error of Absalom -Taking revenge by ourselves when God had told us that revenge is His. He is able to save from the most unexpected places, things and situations,
The story below will help your understanding further:
“Beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.” Matthew 14:30
Sinking times are praying times with the Lord’s servants. Peter neglected prayer at starting upon his venturous journey, but when he began to sink his danger made him a suppliant, and his cry though late was not too late.
In our hours of bodily pain and mental anguish, we find ourselves as naturally driven to prayer as the wreck is driven upon the shore by the waves. The fox hies to its hole for protection; the bird flies to the wood for shelter; and even so the tried believer hastens to the mercy seat for safety. Heaven’s great harbour of refuge is All-prayer; thousands of weather-beaten vessels have found a haven there, and the moment a storm comes on, it is wise for us to make for it with all sail.
Short prayers are long enough. There were but three words in the petition which Peter gasped out, but they were sufficient for his purpose. Not length but strength is desirable. A sense of need is a mighty teacher of brevity. If our prayers had less of the tail feathers of pride and more wing they would be all the better. Verbiage is to devotion as chaff to the wheat. Precious things lie in small compass, and all that is real prayer in many a long address might have been uttered in a petition as short as that of Peter.
Our extremities are the Lord’s opportunities. Immediately a keen sense of danger forces an anxious cry from us the ear of Jesus hears, and with Him ear and heart go together, and the hand does not long linger. At the last moment we appeal to our Master, but His swift hand makes up for our delays by instant and effectual action.
Are we nearly engulfed by the boisterous waters of affliction? Let us then lift up our souls unto our Saviour, and we may rest assured that He will not suffer us to perish. When we can do nothing Jesus can do all things; let us enlist His powerful aid upon our side, and all will be well.
Beloved, as mentioned earlier make the best use of you time in the place of prayer. No verbiage but that which best address your situation said them to God. God is waiting to hear you pray and He will surely save as He is a Mighty God in battle.
Father Lord, answer Your children as they cry unto You today. We will be careful to return all the glory to You.
Today, you will see and testify that God is able to deliver and Might to save, just engage in the place of prayer.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
